The thing that surprised me most about seeing jackals in the wild for the first time this January was how beautiful they are. I guess jackal is a slang term with a kind of negative connotation, so I always grew up under the false assumption that jackals were ugly. Then I saw one in Tsavo…and it was gorgeous. Then I saw a second one, because as my friend George told me, they always travel in pairs.
I thought I posted these before, but I couldn’t find the post, so I guess not! It alarms me how often that happens…
He looks so happy about it
